Peanut Butter Breath strain genetics

Peanut Butter Breath (sometimes called Peanut Butter) is a cross between Do Si Dos and Mendo Breath. It was originally created by ThugPug Genetics, quickly gaining popularity for its unique terpene profile.

The strain shares a similar grandparent on both sides of its family tree. OGKB is a descendant of Girl Scout Cookies (GSC), known for its earthy taste. Other notable Peanut Butter Breath ancestors include OG Kush, Mendo Purps, and Durban.

Terpene profile of Peanut Butter Breath

The main terpenes in Peanut Butter Breath are limonene, caryophyllene, and pinene. These compounds are responsible for the exquisite aroma and flavor of the strain, as well as the effects.

Opening a jar of Peanut Butter Breath might remind you of chestnuts roasting on an open fire. While less sweet than its namesake, the aroma is a bit more herbaceous—more like natural peanut butter than sugary Jif. This weed variety is definitely on the savory side, offering a welcome respite from the dessert strains of the day.

The Peanut Butter Breath strain experience

Smoking a few hits of Peanut Butter Breath is a lot like taking a bite from a PB sandwich: the flavor is overwhelming and may need to be washed down with your favorite drink. Expect cottonmouth with this one, for sure.

The weed strain tends to be on the potent side, with a minimum THC content of 22 percent. However, many varieties available on the Jane website top 30 percent THC.

Many online reviewers report Peanut Butter Breath to be a euphoric and engaging high. “High confidence, giggles, some yawns but the energy to get stuff done,” wrote one user.

“After smoking this I could honestly say I stared into my phone screen for 5 minutes while it was off just smiling for no reason I think it’s safe to say it slaps…” another quipped. 

Since Peanut Butter Breath can come on strong, waiting a few minutes between hits is a good idea. You may find that one or two are all you need for the perfect buzz.

Growing Peanut Butter Breath

Cultivating Peanut Butter Breath from seed may pose a challenge since feminized seeds are basically non-existent. This means that planting Peanut Butter Breath seeds may result in some plants being male. Check the nodes early and often for signs of pollen sacks developing.

If you do manage to get some female plants, the flowering time should last between eight and ten weeks. Expect plants to reach a taller height, making them ideal for outdoor gardens. Those who are new to cannabis cultivation should seek expert advice if they want their Peanut Butter Breath to reach its full potential.
